It may well be the case that golf is one of the more genteel sports people can choose to take part in and that it is, to the game’s shame, a pastime enjoyed almost exclusively by a certain demographic. That doesn’t mean that you won’t be at risk of suffering an injury in an accident that was not your fault while getting a cheeky round in. In fact, there are many threats lurking on the fairway, practice range, green and clubhouse.
If you’re unfortunate enough to suffer some form of injury in an accident that was not your fault while at your local club, there will be a chance that you might be able to take some form of personal injury action against either the club itself or the individual, perhaps another player, who was responsible for you getting hurt. If you and a first-class 100% no win no fee* accident claims in Kirkintilloch solicitor could prove negligence on the part of a third party, you could well be looking at a compensation pay-out. If your injuries were serious, this could well amount to several thousand pounds, or perhaps more.

You would have thought that the threat of being struck by an errant golf ball would be an occupational hazard for a keen golfer. Well, this is not the case at all. If you’re hit by a ball that has been played without due care and attention, even if the person hitting it shouted “fore”, you could well have accident claims in Kirkintilloch action on your hands. If a fellow club member or visitor were to play a ball without making sure the fairway or green were clear, or struck a ball widely of course, you might well have a case if you were to be injured as a consequence.
